Colonialism/Postcolonialism is a comprehensive yet accessible guide to the historical and theoretical dimensions of colonial and postcolonial studies.

Ania Loomba deftly introduces and examines:

  • key features of the ideologies and history of colonialism
  • the relationship of colonial discourse to literature
  • challenges to colonialism, including anticolonial discourses
  • recent developments in postcolonial theories and histories
  • issues of sexuality and colonialism, and the intersection of feminist and postcolonial thought
  • debates about globalization and postcolonialism

Recommended on courses across the academic disciplines and around the world, Colonialism/Postcolonialism has for some years been accepted as the essential introduction to a vibrant and politically charged area of literary and cultural study.

With new coverage of emerging debates around globalization, this second edition will continue to serve as the ideal guide for students new to colonial discourse theory, postcolonial studies or postcolonial theory as well as a reference for advanced students and teachers.
